I'm Awake Now!

AWAKE ...Five minutes to write about this...

It is 7 am. I am still dog tired. I don't want to get up. I am coming out of the sleepy dream state and into a new day. Ughhh!

Tap, tap, tap. "Huh?" "Hi Mom!" "Oh, Bean (nickname for 4 yr. old boy), you scare me when you do that!"

"I'm awake now. Can I come in your bed with you?" "I don't have poopy in my diaper." (we are still working on nighttime potty training)

So he crawls in and lays on my hubbies' pillow. He faces me and pretends to sleep. He twitches, and I can feel his little body's heat. I pretend to sleep, but I can't help but peek to see that sweet face. I can't believe how lucky I am to have this little, sweet person in my life.

He decides he is done pretending to sleep and asks,"Can you scratch my back?"
I do, and I smile. I have to hug him. I don't want this precious moment to end. Before I know it, he will not do this one day. It will be weird for all of us then.

I don't want to get out of bed. He wants to play. I really don't want to be awake, but I am glad I didn't miss this memory I will treasure, keep in my heart forever.

Better than any alarm ever!


  1. Very sweet story! Those early morning visitors are definitely worth waking up for. ;)

    1. I am so in agreement! I am glad you enjoyed the story.

  2. sweet boy ... it's good to savor those moments!

  3. Agreed! Best alarms in the world. I always hated the sound of my alarm in the past. So sweet.

  4. What a PRECIOUS memory!! How sweet that he wants to climb in bed with are right, those days will be over way too soon.

    Thanks for stopping by my place! Where did you move from and to? I moved from the midwest to the east coast...80 miles west of NYC - talk about culture shock!!

    Have a great weekend...

    1. We moved from Fort Collins, CO to Grand Junction, CO.
      It has definitely been a cultural shock for me too.


Share your thoughts with me. I would love to hear from you.
